Our GPS Tom Tom sent us up a winding road that would allow us to walk downhill and then back uphill from the Torc Waterfall. It was a challenging walk and you need good shoes....not sneakers. Beautiful sites and a great walk

This was my favorite thing that we did in Ireland and we didn't even make it all the way to the top (due to lack of time). It was a challenging hike, but the views along the way were beyond breathtaking. We do wish the trail had been labeled. It is different than the yellow, blue and red trails, and... More

Beautiful scenery, well worth the effort to climb. A great mix of forest and meadow punctuated by rocky outcrops

After seeing the lovely Torc Falls you will have the start of a long and somewhat challenging hike on a well worn wide pathway up to the most stunning views you may see in all of Ireland. The paths wind around up top and then down and make for a healthy thou challenging walk/hike. There are several places to sit... More

Torc waterfall never fails to impress. The sheer volume of water coursing down takes my breath away.

We walked to torc waterfall through muckcross. It was long but we were not dissapointed, a bit of an incline but nothing to worry about.

Beautiful day setting off. Started with a nice pathway walk then we started to climb and climb. Times it was hard and very windy when we got near the top. Spectacular views at top. Climp down was better and faster. Very enjoyable day.

There are three paths you can climb. I opted for the most difficult on which takes around 2-3 hours. This involves heading down below the car park (away from the waterfall) and following the signs, eventually you will come to the base. Sheer, uneven rocks act as steps as you hike all the way up the mountain. It is quite... More

this is a great walk for everyone to do on a nice sunday leisure trip with the family, in the boggy parts there are raised platforms to walk on and on the way there are viewing points to stop and view the beautiful scenary

Took over an hour to walk there from the upper car park. With rests it would take longer. The view from the top is incredible. The walkway is mostly raised above the boggy ground and is made of railway sleepers covered with wire mesh. There are also stretches of rocky path.
